Client portals, or private branded storefronts, offer a wealth of benefits to printers and businesses that need efficient web2print procurement systems.
What Are Private Branded Storefronts?
Digital storefront software provides a private online environment for your employees or customers to log into to ‘purchase’ print products.
Web to print portals can be configured to provide only certain products to certain customers, whether they are internal or external, and can be logged into from various locations as they are web based.
What Are The Benefits Of A Client Portal?
As previously mentioned there are various benefits to using a private branded storefront or even multiple storefronts that can be managed from the same back office environment.
A web to print storefront offers a level of workflow automation that will create efficiencies with regards to time and money for clients.
Once your products and user roles and permissions have been configured. Workflow for permissions, the printing of and distribution of products can be automated to minimise the need for double keying. Not only will this improve the accuracy of your process, it will save employees time when ordering standardised print products.
Control Of Products
You can control the products that are displayed on your storefront.
Web to print portals can be configured so that only certain products will be displayed to certain users. This is ideal if you have products that will only be used by one geographical location, or tailored products that should only be used by one user group.
Control Of Budgets
Budgetary controls can be set to ensure that users don’t over-order or overspend.
Budgets can be configured by user, user group, or location. The amount of budget you wish to set is entirely up to you. Orders on your client portal will then be charged against the budget you have set. Budgets can be adjusted after being set by users that have been set as admin on your storefront back office.
